Jetboil Flash Cooking System
Flash™ adds more enjoyment to your favorite outdoor adventure. Like all of Jetboil’s innovative systems, Flash is an all-in-one design, combining burner and cooking vessel in one compact unit. Everything you need is stacked and stored inside the 1.0 liter cooking cup. The system lights with the click of a button and within two minutes provides two cups of boiling water for cocoa, coffee, instant soup or a gourmet freeze-dried meal. The newly designed burner secures the igniter, protecting it from bumps along the road.
Flash™ is designed to be one of the safest cooking solutions out there. The cooking cup clips onto the burner, preventing accidental spills, and the fuel canister tripod ensures overall stability. The insulating cozy has a color-changing heat indicator that signals when contents are hot.

We normally car camp and cook over a fire. If bad weather hits, we just hop in the car and go find food elsewhere.
This being our first time backpacking, we purchased the JetBoil Flash and were very impressed. There was a full day of rain and we didn't worry once about how we were going to cook.
It is very compact and you can fit a fuel canister inside the pot.
We haven't had a problem with the lid warping or melting, but we kept a close eye on it (hard not too since the water boils so fast) and didn't let it boil over or for too long. Did not have much wind so we didn't have any trouble with that disabling the stove.
Our friends who backpack regularly brought their trusty stoves, but when they wanted boiled water fast, they often borrowed ours.
I was very impressed with this stove and its user friendliness.

The cup locks in place with the stove. I can hold the cup handle while cooking with the cup. To fix the problem with gas canister place it in your sleeping bag, the next morning the canister is not that cold, so you should not have the problem with igniter. I don't cook with the lid on so I don't have an issue with the lid melting. Its good heating up water but not great to cook in.
When first turning on the stove I found you need to crank it up so the built in igniter will ignite the fuel first time. I would bring a match or liter just in case. Also the stabilizer, gas canister, and the igniter stove all fits in the cup. Sweet! :) I love my JETBOIL!!!!!
